(b) Each application for certification of equipment operating under the
provisions of this subpart must be accompanied by an affidavit from
UTAM, Inc. certifying that the applicant is a participating member of

attendant to participation in UTAM, Inc., the Commission may invoke
administrative sanctions as necessary to preclude continued marketing
and installation of devices covered by the grant of certification,
including but not limited to revoking certification.
(c) An application for certification of a PCS device that is deemed by
UTAM, Inc. to be noncoordinatable will not be accepted until the
Commission announces that a need for coordination no longer exists.
(d) A coordinatable PCS device is required to incorporate means that
ensure that it cannot be activated until its location has been
coordinated by UTAM, Inc. The application for certification shall
contain an explanation of all measures taken to prevent unauthorized
operation. This explanation shall include all procedural safeguards,
such as the mandatory use of licensed technicians to install the
equipment, and a complete description of all technical features

for disabling operation in the event it is moved outside the geographic
area where its operation has been coordinated by UTAM, Inc. The
application for certification shall contain a full description of the
safeguards against unauthorized relocation and must satisfy the
Commission that the safeguards cannot be easily defeated.

primary status. Interference protection is not required for part 101

(h) The operator of a PCS device that is relocated from the coordinated
area specified by UTAM, Inc., must cease operating the device until
coordination for the new location is verified by UTAM, Inc.
